Battleground or Longest Day for me. But as they weren't options...A Bridge to Far.Originally posted by panzerboy
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WWII MOVIE!!!
Mine would have to be the HALLS OF MONTAZUMA!!!
Der Brucke (The Bridge) is a really good movie despite the cheesy Sherman.Originally posted by tetsuko47
A Bridge to Far is a good pick but I also like the German 1985 version of Stalingrad. Das Boot is pretty good as well.
The American tanks in German clothing was a matter economics. You rented the Spanish Army etc. for a day/week/whatever and used what they had.Originally posted by daemonofdecay
I like older movies (A Bridge to Far, Bridge on the River Kwai, The Great Escape, The Longest Day, Patton, etc. etc.) but the one thing that makes me angry is how they all used American M-60 or Bulldog etc tanks in the movies. Very few had the Real German tanks, just american tanks painted grey with crosses on the side.
On another note, im looking to rent/buy the movie 'Stalingrad', does anyone have a personal review? I'm pretty sure it's directed by Wolfgang Peterson (or the Guy that directed Das-Boot if I didn't get the name right) and I liked Das-Boot. So, thoughts?
Actually I thought some of the battle scenes in Pearl Harbor weren't so bad, but what DRIVEL for the rest of the movie.Originally posted by Panzer Leader
It is completey unrealistic. Crazy stuff like 2 fisted gunplay etc. Still much better than Pear Harbor. LOL
